About Keynote Speaker Marcel Muenster, MD MPH

Dr. Muenster is a Johns Hopkins-trained medical doctor, digital health entrepreneur, and early-stage investor, who always has his passport in his pocket. As a student, Marcel was a medical student traversing the globe delivering bone marrow to leukemia patients, and now he is advising royal families and venture-backed companies to maximize their performance, built a global digital health company, and is running marathons. Marcel has traveled to over 70 countries to develop a deeper understanding of the unique cultures that make up life and lead to success in our hyperconnected world. 

Through his process, he has internalized the traits of humility and curiosity, personal characteristics, that make him simultaneously relatable and inspirational. 

Marcel is a dynamic and successful serial entrepreneur whose work and expertise have been featured in Forbes, Financial Times, Harvard Business Review, World Economic Forum’s Agenda, TechCrunch, New York Times, Entrepreneur Magazine, and other industry-leading publications. Dr. Muenster was also interviewed on CNN about performance maximization. He joined forces with the World Health Organization to improve healthcare in Latin America and gained his clinical experience in Germany, Switzerland, South Korea, and at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Before joining Gfk as a healthcare consultant, he worked on a multinational hospital project at the Harvard Business School.

In 2012 he founded Doctor in Your Pocket, a global digital medical concierge service available in 180+ cities, giving international travelers access to trusted local, virtual, and house call doctors around the clock anywhere in the world, an endeavor that earned him a nomination for Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award. 

Recognizing the need for startup founders to own their potential, Marcel established The Gritti Fund, the world’s first investment fund focused on the founder’s performance, mental and physical. The ultimate goal is to enhance the success rate of startups that fail due to founder burnout (65%) and therefore change the global investment paradigm for early-stage investments. The fund focuses primarily on healthcare investments in the Middle East and Africa. The team has built companies on six continents, raised above $150M, and sold companies for more than $300M. Limited partners to the fund have included former Fortune 100 CEOs from Becton Dickinson and other accomplished entrepreneurs.

The Gritti Fund has been soliciting applications for its #PitchUpInTheSky initiative for a chance to win a US$10,000 investment as well as mentorship for a year, in addition to a number of services and perks from enterprises like Lark Suite and Microsoft For Startups. Held as a partnership with Tik Tok, the competition will see the shortlisted finalists deliver their startup pitches as they rapidly ascend in an aircraft for a skydive in what is expected to be the most live-streamed startup pitch event in history.

When he isn’t working, he’s a history buff and loves running marathons. He was part of the German Olympic training center as a middle-distance runner.  

Marcel was endorsed by Sir Richard Branson and is on the panel of experts at the World Economic Forum focused on healthcare, mental health, and entrepreneurship. 

In 2019 alone, Marcel gave fifteen talks including two keynotes in ten countries. Topics included performance maximization, innovation in healthcare, and his transformation from a medical doctor to entrepreneur and now an investor. 

# Dr. Muenster’s mission is to Empower People To Own Their Potential

Testimonials

Marcel is a fantastic entrepreneur. He has the perfect balance between out-of-the-box-thinking and focus, which is so rare to find. We hired him as a consultant for Buoy to just be able to pick his brain for a few hours, and it was well worth every dollar. Beyond his intellectual and strategic prowess, he’s a good human being.

Andrew Le

CEO and Founder at Buoy Health

A successful healthcare entrepreneur and seasoned mentor, Marcel is genuine in his desire to help other digital health execs solve some of the key challenges we are experiencing today. I found him insightful and skilled at quickly dissecting complex problems with a keen eye for developing corrective action plans. I thoroughly enjoyed our initial discussions and look forward to many more
